Client Reviews
★★★★★
"Mr. Mielnicki recently defended me on my DUI case. He not only got my license suspension wiped away, but he got my DUI charge knocked down to a General Impairment. This is not the first time Mr.Mielnicki has defended me either. When I was younger he defended me on a pretty serious case and got 3 felonies knocked down to misdemeanors. If you want to win, pick Rob Mielnicki." Garrett
★★★★★
"When I was losing patience finally for my girlfriends return home. Something showed me Robert. Robert was there for me and her. Visited her. And walked her through everything. Being very confident with this judge, he was able to successfully lift this detainer. If you ever need a detainer removed or a motion to be filed. I highly recommend him." Robert & Crystale
★★★★★
